Defending Your Faith Can Still Get You Killed

In American we often take our liberty for granted. It is important to remember that in other countries people do not enjoy the freedom we do. One current example is Pakistan. About a year and a half ago, a woman in Pakistan defended her Christian faith in public when she was taunted for her beliefs. She was sentenced to die for blaspheming Mohammed. Even if she pardoned, she will have to go into hiding because the religious leaders have put a price on her head.

The freedom of religion and expression are important freedoms that flow from the Christian tradition of the west. It is important that we preserve these freedoms, and never take them for granted.
